A Hancock County Judge Thursday ruled there was enough evidence to continue the case of a Revere, Missouri man charged with murder-for-hire.

27 year old Christopher Brown is alleged to have offered money to a fellow inmate to kill three people set to testify against Brown in a sexual abuse case.

Brown now also faces three counts of solicitation of murder for hire.

A trial date was set for May 2nd, with a pretrial conference April 11th.
